Pingyao Food Walking Tour

1 review
Put away the guidebooks and online reviews and get dinner with a local on this evening walking tour through Pingyao. In your small group, follow your guide around the city streets at night and visit street food stalls, eateries, restaurants and more, sampling snacks and delicacies native to Shanxi province. Eat enough for a full dinner without stressing about whether you’ve made the right choice.

There are so many escort banks that it is easy to miss one because you have already seen too many. This is THE one to visit. Much larger than the others, it is also easy to miss the basement, which is very interesting.

This was an interesting place as it was where banking started in China. We had a very knowledgeable guide (Miss Lu) who explained how they used to keep money safe, how the first "cheques" were controlled and how monies were transferred.

This is apparently a must see according to the Lonely Planet but it's really just a few rooms with not much in them.

It's quite similar to Rishengchng. If the time is tight, this can be skipped. Many introduction materials are only in Chinese.
